HOUSTON — Backup quarterback Kerry Collins will get the start for the Titans today against the Houston Texans.

Collins took the first-team reps all week in place of Vince Young, who was nursing a strained right quadriceps muscle suffered last week in Tampa Bay.

Young did practice with the scout team on Friday for one series.

Collins, in his 13th NFL season, will be making his first start since Sept. 24, 2006 when he started for Tennessee at Miami.
